Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame. 

With conquering lines astride from land to land;

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. ^ 

"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp! cries" she 

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, yuurpoor,

Industry uses. - 

new technology 

■ Pennington County purchases 
new 'fingerprinting machine 

by Jeff Achen 


Hollywood has made the fiction- 
al notion of thumbprint scanners 
and retina identification devices a 
popular-one. Though this technolo- 
gy, called biometrics, may seem 
futuristic, it's not all that far off. 

Advances in biometric technolo- 
gy now allow those in law enforce- 
ment to scan and download finger- 
print images electronically. . 

In 1997 the Minnesota 
Legislature appropriated funds for 
the installation of electronic finger- 
print capture devices in shenff's 
offices throughout the state. 
Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal 
Apprehension (BCA) purchased u 
Printrak LSS 2000 fingerprint cap- 
ture device for the Pennington 
County Law Enforcement Center 
and equipment training commenced _ 

Local law. enforcement officials 
learned to properly acquire finger- 
prints ond^download uicm to the 
BeArTh'e old way of fingerprinting- 
meant a lot of paperwork for author- ' 
ities and several days of delay, 
before the BCA and other agencies 
■obtnuied-thcm. A— Pennington — methodologies; 

Using biometrics as part of the 
fingerprinting process is a far less 
complex process than implementing 
biometrics in more private indus- 
tries or for the everyday citi/en. 
According to Simon Liu. director of 
computer and communications sys- 
tems at the National- Library- of 
Medicine, and Mark Silverman." 
technical advisor at the Center of 
Information Technology. National 
Institutes of Health, there are cur- 
rently around 150, separate ..hard- 
ware and software vendors jn the 
biometrics industry. Each vendor, 
Whether agency or (company, has its 
own proprietary interlaces, algo- 
rithms, and data structures. 
Standards arc emerging, however, 
that allow for effective comparison 
and cvuluution of different biomet- 
ric technologies, making it easier to 
know which is the Ixsi buy and the 
best-fit for any orgunizatiun looking.- 
lo implement biometrics. • ... 

Groups like the Biometric. 
Consortium, and the Microsoft 
Computer Corporation arc develop- " 
■ing— such ^-standards.- The. U.S. 
Department ''"':" oT Defense's 
Biometrics Management Office is 
also developing standard testing 

little investigating as lo the stnldc*! 
origin;. . 

Unlike the original, the staiuc at 
Northern Stale Bank is slimmer and 
'more-curved and its arm is slightly 

York Hurbor, the statue is one of the 
largest ever made, and its proper 
name is Liberty Enlightening the 

(Continued on Page 14) 

Lady Liberty Is once again taking center stage In the main lobby 
of Northern Stat* Bank, rerninding bank visitors of the many free- 
doms we enjoy on Independence Day and every other day of the 
year. Jhe replica of the famous State of Liberty was purchased by 
NorttierrPState Bank founder George Betto in 193S when he 
bought the building that formerly housed first National Bank. 
Until the bank's remodeling In the early 1970s, the statue was Its . 
lobby's' centerpiece. . ' 

County official - said the BCA 
receives between 7.000 to 8,000 fin- 
gerprints per month. 
. TJie Printrak LSS 2000 is also 
capable of taking mugshois, though 
Pennington County's machine is 
used solely for taking, fingerprints. 
The machine can print .out paper 
copies of fingerprints, as well and 
download them directly to the BCA. 
Biometric technology 
Biometric technology is defined 
as the measurement of unique per- 
sonal characteristics. Physical bio- 
metrics involve things such as fin- 
gcrprinls, iris scans, and faccprints. 

Liu and Silverman write that bio- 
metric technology is continually 
advancing. One of the problems 
with biometrics lies in the storage 
and security of the user's tempinicr" 
or biometric "signature-.'* Storing 
the templates means storing some? 
one's personal characteristics? 
which often stirs up debute about., 
privacy concerns or susccptihility to 
identity theft. As the computer 
industry evolves, so do computer 
crimes, un'd'no one wants, their fin- 
gerprints or reu'nu scuns stolen or 
forged. A possible solution for this .

Off icers to address 
seat belt safety 

Law enforcement officers across ' 
the state will put in overtime 
enforcement hours for a Safe and 
Sober campaign focused on seat 
belt safety over the Independence 
Day holiday travel period. During 
the enforcement wave, to take 
place between June 28 and July 7, 
"■""■ -tlian-350-law— enforcement- 

agencies, including all districts of 
the Minnesota State Patrol, will 
enforce Minnesota's seat belt law 
in on effort to ensure that all 
Minncsotans are riding safely. • 

According to Minnesota law, 
officers-must have stopped a vehi- 
cle for another moving violation 
• before they can issue a belt citation. 
A scat belt citation 'will typically 
cost the recipient between $50 and 
$75 for each unbuckled occupant. 

Statistics show that one person 
in Minnesota is killed every 13.5- 
liours in a motor vehicle crash, and 
that buckling up culs the risk of 
-dying in a crash by half. While scot- 
belt use in Minnesota is currently 
about 73 percent, numbers vary' 
regionulIy-Surveys-are. conducted 
periodically, before and after 
enforcement waves, to -determine' 

"the change in behavior caused by 
enforcement. If 85 percent of driv- 
ers and passengers buckled scat 
belts regularly, about 50 lives 
would be saved, and 1,000 injuries 
avoided each year in Minnesota. 

The Chief of Minnesota's State 
Patrol, Anne Beers, says that sum-

"In the winter months, people 
drive more slowly. There is a lot df

"Then in the summertime, the mix 
of vehicles changes, with motorcy-

Olson pointed out that there

Few people realize that road" 
ditches often have u greater variety 
dP plants than can be found in most 
-gardens. Although il ulwuys looks 
.' nice and neat after they mow, I 
sometimes wish they'd let the 
Uitchcs be for us long us possible so 
we can enjoy, llic flora. 
_ Jusi today, 1 suwti pink wild 
rose, a white wild rose,' some 
yarrow, Queen Anne's, lace,- and

■ However, the man who mows 
for ihe couniy is immune from 
prosecution, and he mows down 
everything— from roses lo la"dy slij'P- 
pers— without fear of punishment. 

During the, countless thousands 
of hours I spent on a school bus as 
a child, t often looked out the win- 
dow and watched (he road ditches 
go by. I imagined lhat ihe bus hud u 
sickle, mower attached to it, and 
that the grass fell nicely to the 

grou nd a s ihe bus passed.. 

They don't use sickle mowers 
anymore. They have those grinders 
which do a belter job, but which 

sickle mower slicing through the 
■ grass and laying il ncnl|y down. 

You know, not "c very whae do

.'.'"" ...Downhill After the Fourth of July. " 

I am beginning lo remember why I dislike llic months of July and" 
August. Last week reminded me of the miscrabte humid heat of these 
months and the moths are reminding me of the other reason.! dislike these 
months - the bugs. 

I hate bugs, especially those thai bite and bother me. Frankly, I don't 
even like the looks of the bugs that leave me alone. I just don't like bugs. 

I don't like the looks-of them. When you really lodk at most bugs. 
many of them have little faces that arc downright ugly - and some of them 
have very pointed little snouts that look mighty dangerous to me - us if 
Ihey could take a bile out of me. I don'l like die fact thafthcy arc so tiny 
lhat Ihey fit into my cars, nose and mouth - and sometimes enter those ori- 
fices. I don'l like it lhat bugs can move so fast - they and run and 
jump so fast that one can hardly keep track of them - and where they arc 
or where ihey arc going next - like onto me. - , . 

.1 don' 1 like_spi_derejiither t even though 1 know that ihey arc benefi- 
cial bugs, eating mosqui foes and other nasty creepy crawlics. I have real- 
ly tried to appreciate the spider. Once 1 sal down next lo one and tried lo 
be very. friendly and sensible about it. thinking of it like a little^pci. 1 ' 
watched it doing its thing, toddling along on its long legs, all the while 
telling mysetfthat this- was jusl a nice bug that was merely walking along, 
minding Us own business, and it wasn't the least bit interested in me. 

I looked into its little face, idling myself that il was a friend, there 
wasn't n thing 10 be afraid of and ttrat-it couldn'l help. looking the way il 
did because thai is ihc way God made il. I saw. its creepy-crawly legs 
walking along, then walking faster und fus|er, albeit awny from me, and 1 
couldn'l help myself- friend or not - 1 stepped on it. 1 just didn't want to 
lake the chance lhat it-would turn" around' and run at me on those creepy- 
crawly legs. 

The. bugs on my most-hated list al llic present time and (he ones thai ~ 
remind me of why I hate August are those liltle. billy flies lhat cluster 
around me, especially my head and face. Arc they called gnals? I thought 
ihey used to be called fruil flies. 

Whatever ihey arc called, they arc the most irritating things I have 

No matter how -carefully I check llic door before 1 go out, pecking 
first in one direction and theh the oilier to make sure I don'l sec any bunch- 
es of Ihe buggers, it doesn't matter. Tlic minuic I set foot outside ihe door 
they are righl there. 

They swarm around my head and get into my hair, all over my face. 
under my glasses, into my ears und nose. If I open my mouth (just to mut- 
ter a few profanities al them, perhaps), lhcy_fjy into il. too, and then 1 find 
myself standing ouiside in full view or the neighbor; shouting profanities 
and spilli ng.

TfUoes no earthly good to izy to ignore them because lliey just don'l

don't care about ihcir dead comrades either. In fact, it seems as if killing a

The" season's first probable "case 
of mosquito-borne LaCrosse 
. encephalitis hus been reported- to, 
the Minnesota Department of 
..Health (MDH). promptings a 
reminder from MDH officials 
aboqtlhe. need to protect yourself 
from ihc LaCrosse virus. 

What appears to be the year's 
first laboratory-con finned case of 
the illness was' reported in u one- 
year-old boy from the southwestern 
Twin Cities area. The child' hud 
been hospitalized, bu t hus since, 
been released "and is now recover- 
ing. — ■ .. . 

A possible case had also been 
reported earlier in the Winona area, 
but it was/lutcr determined that the 
illness wasn't actually mosquito- 
bom* encephalitis. 

Minnesota doesn't usually 
record its first cases of LaCrosse 
.encephalitis until luier in Ihc .sum- 
mer, according to Dr. Harry Hull,- 
_ .Minnesota -.Statc-Epidcmiologist.- 
But while officials are concerned 
that the illness may be making un 
early appearance this year. Dr. Hull 
emphasized that it's too early to 
predict whether this will be a "bad 
year" for LaCrosse. 

Every summer, MDH officials 
routinely recommend a number of 
preventive measures for people 
wjio live in parts of the state where 
the LaCrosse virus is commonly 
found. Those recommendations 
include eliminating mosquito habi- 
tat, and protecting children from 
mosquito bites. / 

■ Like many other states, 
-Minnesota is also on the ulertfora ■- 
.possible appearance by the West 

Nile encephalitis virus." But as of 
last year. West Nile had only been 
found in 12 northeastern states and 
the District of Columbia. So far this 
year,. evidence of the virus has only 

been found in Connecticut^ 

Maryland, New Jersey, New York 
und Rhode Island, und no human 
cases of illness have beep reported. 

But MDH officials say the most 
immediate health threat here is 
from the LaCrosse strain, which 
has been a fixture of life in the 
LaCrosse also remains/ the most 
Jcomlnon form of mosquito-borne 
encephalitis nationwide'. 

Minnesota's experience with 
LaCrosse may help it cope with any 
potential threat from West Nile, 
according -io David Neitzel of the. 
MDH Acute Disease. Investigations 
and Control Section. 

Minnesota's ongoing surveil- 
lance for the LaCrosse encephalitis 
virus -should- help state-officials - 
detect any West Nile activity. 
Neitzel noted. Minnesota officials 
ulrcudy monitor for possible cases 
of mosquito-borne encephalitis in 
humans, us well as virus activity in 
mosquitoes and other animals. 

The- muin uddition to the state's 
encephalitis surveillance has been 
the collection and examination of 
dead birds that may have been 
infected with West Nile. Crows and 
Jays, in particular, tend to be very 
vulnerable to West Nile, and die . 
very quickly once they become

Minnesota Department of Natural 
Resources to collect and'tcsi birds

circumstances. . r .. -Houston. Olmsted, Ramsey, Rice. 

"It's very possible that West Nile • Wabasha. Washington, Winona and

Minnesota doesn't usually 
record its first cases of LuCro'ssc 
encephalitis until later in the surii-' 

_mer, accordingto DrrHfcyHuIir 
Minnesota State Epidemiologist. 
But' while officials are concerned 

. that the illness may be making an 
early appearance this year, Dr. Hull 
emphasized (hat it's too early to 
predict whether this will be a "bad- 
year" for LaCrosse. 

Every summer, MDH officials 
routinely recommend u number of 
preventive measures for people 
who live in. parts of the state where 
the LaCrosse virus is commonly 
found. Tliosc recommendations 
include eliminating mosquito habi- 
tat, and protecting children from 

mosquito bites. 

Like many other . slates, 
Minnesota is also on the alen for a 
possible appearance by the West 

Nile encephalitis virus. But as of that may have died under unusual

a small pool of water. Because this 
particular mosquito doesn't tend to 
travel very far. climinuting these 
potential breeding sites from your 

_own nropcny_or_your_immediutc _ 
neighborhood can greatly reduce 
.the risk of exposing children to this 
illness. People living in high risk 
ureas of the state arc advised to gel 
rid of potential breeding sites 
immediately, so they will be ready 
well ahead of the peak season for 
LaCrossqT which usually begins in 
laic July and extends through the 
month of August. 

Protecting your children from 
bites. Appropriate protective cloth- ' 
ing and use of mosquito repellents 
will help protect children against 
exposure to the LaCrosse virus. 
Health officials recommend using a 

Sroduct that contains ho more than , 
percent DEET - the active ingre- 
dient in most insect repellents.

MN farm records 
show high level of 
federal payments 

Tlic average net income for u 
representative group of Minnesota 
farms was $56,083 last year, 
according lo financial records of 
the farms. Tfic records also show 
chut government - . payments 
accounted for S5 percent of the 
total net income. The figures 
underscore the importance of fed- 
eral dollars to supplement farm 
income.. says Blue Earth County" 
educator Kent '.Thicssc of the 
University of Minnesota Extension- 

The income figures are from the 
Minnesota State Colleges and 
Universities (MNSCU) Farm 
Business Management Program. 
They represent die financial 
records of nearly 2.300 farms. The 
figures arc fairly typical of farm 
operations throughout southern 
and western Minnesota and other 
.upper Midwestern states, accord- 
ing lo Ttiiesac. 

The farms in the MNSCU pro- 
gram/averaged $47,651 in govern- 
ment payments in 2000, or 85 jwr- 
ccnt of total net income. An aver- 
age of $21,808' cumc from the 
-scheduled Agricultural— Market- 
■Transitio n Act (AMTA)_paynicnis_ 
that arc pan of the seven-year fed- ' 
oral Farm Bill. The other $25,843 
jyimcjiri man lyjrom_cxira _AMTA_J 
payments and oilseed payments 
that were part-of the Market Loss 
Assistance Program, and other fed- 
eral programs for selected farmers 
-such as -the- Conservation Reserve — | 
Program and disaster programs. 

Surrounded by family and friends, Gretchen and 
'Gene Beito listened as their long-time friend Orin 
Green^ spoke at a program honoring them as 

Pennington County Historical Society's Pioneer 
Family for 2001 Saturday at Peder Engelstad 
Pioneer Village. 

The percentage of net farm 
income from government 'pay- 
ments was highest in the Red River 
Valley at nearly 96 percent, and 
lowest in cast central and northeast 
Minnesota at 62.5 percent. South 

I ccnu3iLMinnesota.was-aLjust.over — i 

88 percent of net farm income from I 
government payments, while 
southwest Minnesota was at 31 

Cercent ■ and west Central 
linnesota at 84.5 percent. 
It's important to keep in'mind 
that not all farmers receive a high 
levcl-of government payments, 
Thicssc points out. Livestock pro- 
ducers with limited crop acreage 
and farmers producing specialty 
crops derive far less of their 
income from government .pay-, 

The U.S. Department of 
Agriculture paid out record levels 
of federal farm payments in 1998, 
1999 and 2000 to offset low crop 
prices and minimize die effects of 
"low farm profitability. Without the 
federal dollars, there would proba- 
bly have been an economic disaster 
for farm businesses in many areas 
of Minnesota, says Thicssc. 

Federal government figures ' 
show direct payments to -farmers 
totaled nearly S30 billion in 2000. ■ 
This compares with about $23 bil- 
lion in 1999. slightly over S 12* bil- 
lion in 1998 and 57.5 billion in

void of emotion, further confirming 
.her belief lhat he has little regard for 
life, his own or the lives of others. 

In sentencing Raincr to 224

Arctic Cat's four-stroke 
receives honors 

Manufacturers of the first modem 
four-stroke powered snowmobile 
were recently .honored at the 
International Snowmobile 

Congress (ISC) in recognition of 
work done on developing new 
environmentally-friendly engine 
technology for snowmobiles. ... 

The special 2001 BLIZZ'OR' 
environmental award was present- 
ed by Yves Watier of the Quebec 
Federation of Snowmobile Clubs 
(FCMQ). Each year, the award is 
presented to one of the four manu- 
facturers who display extraordinary" 
action within the snowmobile 
' industry. 

■ "We. all saw the prototype a year 
ago . in .Manchester, New 
HampshirCTmd since then Arctic 
Cat has led the way to meet two of 
our biggest -environmental chal- 
lenges - snowmobile emission and 
noise." stated Yves Watier of 
FCMQ. "Arctic Cat became the 
flag bearer for our industry, demon- 
strating in a very tangible way that 
the snowmobile, snowmobile man- 
ufacturers and snowmobilcrs them- 

and improving our environment." 
In use in limited numbers for the 

-past- two- scasons _ as* both - : rental 
sleds in West Yellowstone, Mont., 
and at many Arctic Cat events, the 

C TECH 4 engine showed Aid 
economy in the 20-25 mpg range. 
And its weight compares favorably 
to other sleds in its class. Along 

. with their clean and quiet 
demeanor, tne new Arctic Cat four- 
strokes arc proving themselves 

ultra durable as. well. ( ._ 

"The durability of 'these new 

-machines is outstanding,". states-- 
Arctic Cat's Snowmobile Product 
Manager, Joel Hallstrom. "The 
West Yellowstone rental fleet 
logged 250,000 miles wiuVnot u 

"single engine failure."* 

For the upcoming 2001-2002 
snowmobiling season, Arctic Cat 
remains the only manufacturer to 
offer a four-stroke snowmobile 
commercially available throughout 
its network of dealerships. Also, in 

-response to requests from its cus -" 
tomcrs for quieter, cleaner 
machines the company continues 
hard at work to improve the emis- 
sions, and sound level performance 
of traditional two-stroke engine 
technology. ■

The people of France presented 
the Statue'of Liberty to th* Minister 
of the United States in Paris on July 
4, 1884, and it was shipped to the 
United States, in 214 coses aboard 
thq French ship hire in June 1885. . 
The site chosen for the statue 
was the center of old Fort Wood, 
built in the shape of an 1 1 -point star 
during the early 1800s, on what 
was formedy named Bedloe Island 
in New York Harbor. 

President Graver Cleveland ded- 
icated the monument on October 28, 
1886, and it was unveiled before 
representatives of both countries. 
The people of France had donated ■ 
about $250,000 for the statue's con- 
struction, and the people of the 
United States gave about $280,000 
for its pedestal. A model of the stat- 
ue stands on a bridge over the Seine 
River in Paris. 

Floodlights were added to the 
statue's base in 1916; and it became 
a national monument in 1924.

— <In 1956, Congress changed the- 
name of the island from Bedloe 
Island to Liberty Island, and Ellis 
Island, an immigration station until 
1954, was added to the national 
monument in 1965. In" 1972, the 
National Museum of Immigration, 
built inside' Uic statue's base,' 
opened. • — - ■ 

In 1984, the National Park 
Service, which maintains the Statue 
of Liberty National Monument; -1 
-embarked on a three-and-a-tialf- 
year, S31 million restoration project 
of the Statue of Libcny. The repairs, 
which were necessitated by damage 
caused by. wear, included strength- 
ening connections between the arm, 
head and remainder of the statue. 

The Statue of Liberty represents 
a proud wo man, dressed in a Joosc 
robe that falls in graceful folds to 
the top of the pedestal on which the 
torch raised high in the air, and the 
left arm holds a tablet on which the 
date of the Declaration of 
Independence is inscribed. Acrown_ 
of huge spikes, "resembling therays 
of the sun, rests on its head, and at 
its feet, a broken shackle symbol- 

izes the overthrow.of tyranny. . 

The Statue of Liberty is one of 
Ihe most celebrated examples of 
repousse" work, the process of ham- 
mering metal over a mold in order 
to shape it. This statue is made of 
more than 3t>0 thin sheets of copper 
with a total weight of about 100 
short tons. The outer layer of copper 
is supported by an iron framework 
resembling un oil derrick. Tnc-stat- 
ue stands 151 feet, I inch high and 
weighs 450,000 pounds. 

Floodlights from its 150-foot 
base shine on the statue, and the 
torch, which rises 305 feet, 1 inch 
above the base of the pedestal, 
gleams at night with powerful 

According the the 1986 National 
Geographic article, replicas of the 
statue have been sold continually 
from the statue's inception. While 
some have been commissioned by 
the official committees who sought 
to raise money first for the statue's 
construction and later for its rcstora- 
_tion, others havc.bccn-.sold-by.pri-— 
vatc companies seeking personal 
profit .: ^ __ 

Many owners of statues such as 
the one at Northern Slate Bank 
deem them a reminder of Statue of 
Liberty on Liberty Island— o sym- 
bol of hope and freedom lighting 
the world.

studying ways to make' better use 
of seasonal weather changes to pro-

tologist Mark Seeley of the 
University of Minnesota Extension 
Service. • - 

"^"S«Iey _ cilcTT^nt~aiircIes _ iii _

increasing efficiencies in harness- 
ing ocean wave motions to produce

improved technology may allow up 
to 16 percent of the world's elec- 
tricity output generated by 
wave motions," he notes. 

Coastal areas are rated for ener- 
gy production based on the waves'

' "Seasonally, ihe ~ maximum 
power production by waves occurs 
during the winter," .Seeley points 

out. "That's when atmospheric 
pressure differences produce a 
magnitude and constancy of waves 
due to winds." - 

On the other hand, the maxi- 
mum opportunity to produce power 
from solar energy occurs during the

higher sun angles and longer days

Eight people have died in

have been canoeists, according lo 
Ihc Department of Natural

a few yards u near impossibility. 

"Just about any outdoor recre-

Smalley said. "Die canoeist has to 
accept responsibility to minimize

so sightings are relatively rare. Each 
-year, the^DNR -receives numerous 
calls from people who arc delighted,

inconvenienced by a visit from these

- bear encounters take place in the late

"This is a very difficult time for

"Bears are still enough of a novel-

Bcrnhjclm said. "But unless they are 
discouraged early, bears can develop 
unhealthy habits. By the time peo- 
ple's excitement wears off, the bear's 
natural fear of humans may have ' 
been reduced to the poinr where the

June they arc on the move and alert 
for any source of food." 

Imagine a ravenous bear getting a 
whiff of dog food in a bock yard, 

itself. The old saying that 'a fed bear 
is ; a dead bear is true in many 
instances." • 

Bear sightings arc most prevalent 
in northern Minnesota, but they've 
also been spotted in inhabited areas 
as well. Bcrnhjclm said Minnesotans

Road checks 
found many boats

' State* conservation officers ■ 
recently conducted exotic species/ 
aquatic plant transportation road 
checks near Baudcttc, checking 85 
vehicles during a two-day period. 
Algae was discovered on two trail- 
ers, but no exotic species were 
detected and no aquatic plants were 
confirmed. An exotic species road 
check of 187 vehicles near Anoka 
resulted in only 16 warnings issued 
for small-amounts of vegetation, on 
boats and trailers. 

Minnesota is currently .home to 
numerous exotic plants and ani- 
mals. Some of these have been 
determined lo be detrimental to 
native flora and fauna. In an effort

-Editorial-opinion published under this heading is intended-to stimulate thinking and discussion among our readers. Unless specified otherwise, the editorials are written by Editor Dave Hilt and 
do not represent opinion of other staff members. Opinions in items from other publications may not coincide with the editor's own views but are offered for their general interest. 

Welcome to 
the Frontier 

America's frontier is not disappearing, it's just 
moving around. 
.. _ While looking Tor ideas about editorials; I like to look at area 
and regional newspapers. Dave Jameson of the Warren Sheaf, 
had what 1 thought was an interesting column last week about 
the Census. In his column called "Screenings" he explained that 
his-idca for the column came' from CaJ Melgard and _a story ■• 
Melgard the USA Today newspaper. 

America's frontier is not disappearing, it's just moving around 
so why not use it to our benefit. That was the gist of the story 
and column. 
Jameson pointed out that the Census Bureau defines "fron- 
-nici > ^?ranjrrounty'iharhasTi*popu!atlon"denslty"wIUi"tewenhiin — 
six peopJc per square mile. According to this definition, there 
arc 400 counties with 4.7 million residents, and more than 1.4 

_million^s_quare.milcA^at_are.stiIL^tontictla>Lof the 2000 

Census.- Of course much of the "frontier" is located in Alaska. 
but 900.000 square miles of "frontier" remain in the 48 contigu- 
ous states. And guess where most 
of that "frontier" space is located? 
.That's right, the Dakotas. 
Montana. Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, 
and Nevada. 
- Ttn> "fi-nniii'r" h;'^ Jyi'rwtfciip- 

The Census Bureau 
defines "frontier" 
as any county that 

density with fewer 
than six people per 
square .mile. 

pearing. but it isn't exactly gone 
nor is it disappearing at the rate 
we've heard. According to the 
U.S.Census. the U.S. lost only 
""four percent or its territory desig- 
nated as "frontier." while the pop- 
ulation in the United States has increased by 32.7 million peo- 
ple. - . ■ ■ 

; Jameson said in his column that Cat suggested" putting up 
signs on the border coming in to Mashall County saying 
"Welconnno,the Frontier." He added that while he thought Cal 
was pulling his leg~about the sign idea, he may have a good ■ 
,' - Apparently others, though they may not realize it, are think- 
i ing along'lh'c same lines. Jameson noted that Ethel Thorlacius is 
toiling to promote the idea of developing what she calls heritage 
tourism in this pan of Minnesota. 

.1 would like ro add that our area Chamber of Commerce 
agencies have been actively promoting birding tours, snowmo- 
biling and ottTcractivities found only in less populated areas for" 
years. And, Norma Hanson recently promoted a bus tour called 
'Tours through the Countryside." Thursday. I received a news 
'release from Friends of the-Prairic, Milbank. S.D., which.was 
promoting a busjour called "Passport to Prairie". The bus tour 
will focus on national wildlife refuges. I'm sure there arc many 

more examples as well. 

I don't want to leave anyone with the impression that we live 
.in a void, or in an area devoid of human habitation, or that 
human habitation should be restricted from the area. Living here, 
does have its hardships, but it's not without its comforts. One of 
the hardships might well be having to put up with folks who , 
would like to kick out all human inhabitants, and those who 
would rather sec fewer tax dollars spent in the "frontier". I can 

think of an advant age too — peace a nd quiet. 

BurTWdrTsuspcct, many others Iike~CaI's idea.' Let's just '- - 
put out a sign that says "Welcome to the Frontier".

the patients' 
bill of rights 

by Jack Paris 
President NFIB 

"Patients' rights" legislation is 
once again taking center stage in 
Washington, D.C. The new leader- 
ship in the Senate is making the 
curbing of the HMO industry a pri- 
ority and the' nature' of the subject 
overall is making it news. 

Health core affects everyone, so 
when our elected officials talk (or 
e vent jus t posture) about it. most 

"Americans do, indccdT~1isicn. In 
that way, it is unlike so many other 
issues that are debated in our 
nation's capital; it is truly impor- 
tant to one and all. Unfonunatefy.'it ■- 
is also one of the more complicat- 
ed policy issues that legislators can 
grapple with. Not to mention one 
of the most financially significant. 
Whether you purchase health 
insurance on your own, sell health 
insurance to others or provide it to 
employees, the cost is critical. 


Celebrate the Fourth of July from one 
end of the continent to the other 

■ by Mary KilTmcycr : ■ 
MN Secretary of Stale' 

July 4th marks the 225th 
anniversary of the signing of the 
Declaration of Independence. We 
have a great histoiy to celebrate! 

The signing, and the patriots' 
acts leading up to it, ore legendary: 
From Samuel Adams and other 
Bosionians who dumped crates of 
tea into Massachusetts Bay in 
protest of 'taxation without repre- 
sentation': to Paul Revere, who 
rode horseback to warn Samuel 
Adams and John Hancock that 
British soldiers were coming to 

arrest' them; to Hancock and 56 oth- 
ers who signed the Declaration of 
Independence at the risk of being 

John Adams, a signer of the 
Dec I oral ion, and later President of 
the United States, wrote that their 
actions "ought to be celebrated by 
. pomp and parade, with shows, 
games, sports, guns, bch*5, bonfires, 
and illuminations from one end of 
this continent to the other. . . ." 
Adams probably would be pleased 1 
ihat, just os. the nation has expand- 
ed from the cost coast across the ' 
continent, the celebration has 
expanded to include all that he 

envisioned, and more. 

Independence Day has been 
observed every year since 1777, 
when Americans celebrated the 
freedom and promise offered by the 
Declaration of Independence. 
Today, we can revel in the 
founders' acts, and we can rally in 
commitment to making America's 
future even greater, through our 
own acts of good citizenship. 

. We have the privilege of being 
able to look back and celebrate our 
founders' heroic acts; I hope our 
actions today will give future gen- 
erations even more to celebrate on 
Independence. Days yet to come!' 

involved — the health-care indus- 
try as a whole (including not Just 
insurance, but the care itself — 
doctors, nurses, hospitals, pharma- 
ceuticals,, medical, supply .compa-. 
nics, and on and on) makes up one- 
seventh of our overall economy. . 
There is much money to be made, 
and (o be lost.- 

And if .the money alone didn't 
make this thing huge, the level of 
passion surrounding un issue as 
important as our health has helped 
turn it into one of the media's 
favorite issues. 

So we read about it in the paper._

... Minncsaia.Legislaiors stayed up 
late this week to wrap up the 2001 
legislative session and adopt a 
S27.-3 billion two-year biTdgct. 
With the pressure of a possible gov- 
ernment shutdown just hours away. 
Rep. Maxinc Penas (R-Badger) 
said the House passed landmark tax 
and spending bills mat will have an 
impact for years to come not only 
for families in northwestern 
^Minnesota, but for "families 
throughout the state. „ 

"Most significant is the S900 
million tax btll,"'Pcnas said. "We'll 

f;ct another rebate check sometime 
aicr this summer but more imporr 
. tant, the tax bill will substantially 
reduce property taxes on all types 
of property." 

On homes, farms and apart- 
— men Is - pro pcrty- tax* bi 1 1 s -wi 1 1 ■ drop,— 

on average, about 25 percent. For 
-businesses, the savings will aver- 

age about 10 percent. Penas ; 
property owners probably won't 

sec the reductions for-months, but 
the long-term implications for rural 
Minnesota ore very beneficial — 
more housing, expanded businesses 
and jobs, and more profitable 

"The impact will be slate-wide 
and will directly affect almost, 
every resident," Penas said. "This 
is historic legislation." 

-The other significant piece of 
legislation this scssiorijs tnc"K-T2 
education bill, Penas said. There is 
S381 million in additional funding 
for Minnesota schools (three times 
more than what was sought by the 
Governor).. When combined with 
property tax levies, there will be a 
total of $12.7 billion for K-12 
schools, in 2002-2003. As pan of 
the tax reform, the state will 
dated local general education 

levies. . . . .. 

"In addition, many schools, 
especially in rural areas, will sec 

added, funding because the K-12 
bill contains provisions to increase 
equity between schools in the 
metro area and greater Minnesota." 
Penas said. "The bill also provides 
extra money for school districts 
that don't have voter-approved 
excess levies and. money to buy- 
down the existing levies for. those 
districts that do." " 

Also Pena s sai d the K -12 educa- 
tion bill. is signilicant because 6(1 
some of the accountability meos* 
urcs included in the bill which 
encourage schools to look at new' 
ways to pay and reward teachers. 
. "Lang-term, these changes will 
have what I hope will be a signifi- 
cant and beneficial effect on 
schools — better compensated 
teachers, increased . student 
achievement ond-grcQter' accounta- 
bility to taxpayers and parents/' 
Penas said --.- 

We sec it on TV. And it is still dif- 
ficult to decipher the "truth" about 
the "patients bill of rights." 

Is it good for patients or not I 
worth the cost? Is the insurance 
industry telling the truth? Or ore I

Interested in whether they make or

To the Editor: ' 

Democracy is more than a spec- 
tator sport. For it lo survive and 
flourish, wc all must become 
active, engaged citizens. This is the 
representing 75 Minnesota high 
schools, who recently participated 
in the Close Up Foundation gov™ 
ernment studies program in 

Wushingtoh.RG: ;.' -'. 

For a full week these youth had 
unique opportunities to develop a 
cratic process. History, govern- 
ment, and current issues came alive 

for them through meetings with 

.congressional leaders, political 
advisors, and journalists. In addi- 
tion, they learned from other Close 
Up participants from across the 

.nation - through daily-dcbatcs-and 

Most important, they returned 

"Ii5me""with a deepcr'awareness of 
their responsibilities as citizens and 
the realization that a single individ- 
ual can make a difference. Their 
newfound enthusiasm for involve- 

-incntin ouT-iysicm of democracy is- 
to be admired. 

The Close Up experience was

Those in the small-business V 
community who ore insured arc . 
struggling each year .to afford the 
cost of increasing- premiums. The 
Congressional Budget Office has" 
determined that the "rights" bill' 
will increase premiums on average 
of 4.2 percent. That number will 
mean the difference between 
"insured" and "uninsured" for 
thousands of these people. 

There is legislation in Congress 
that would address the problem of 
the uninsured. A new law allowing 
the creation of Association Health 
.plans, for example, would help the ' 
small-business community in par- 
ticular, It is therefore disappointing 
to me that '.'patients' rights" takes 
up so many headlines when it jeal- 
. ly only addresses such a small 

If you, like so many Americans, 
arc passionate about improving 
health care in this country, please 
take a few moments to look at the 
big picture, to think about whether 
"patients' rights" legislation is any- 
thing more than just a bund-aid that 
would give a temporary sense of ■ 
justice and a political feather to 
some groups. Think about how wc 
can get this phenomenal free.mor-

quality of the system Up while 
bringing the prices down. -And if 
you need to sort out the forest from 
the trees after watching the 
evening news. . -t just ask your 
—favorite— small-business owner 


and what they think ought to be 
done. They arc the real experts.

Keep grilling 
fun and safe 
this summer 

It's ho wonder that grilling is a ' 
favorite way to cook this summer. It

• When using frozen beef, defrost

state ihc media gencralist position ut

--—The- recent resignation - of 
Challenger Assistant Principal John 
Ruttcn, however, has left the board 
Willi options, and it discussed at 
length whether it should hire anoth- 
er assistant principal or reinstate the

All members agreed that they- 
had accepted Marofi's April recom-

the media gencralist position would 
be eliminated for a period' of one 
school year only. Many board mem- 
bers, too. felt that the rcsignadon of 
Ruttcn had provided the board with 
a window of opportunity. 

While one board member offered

grade, Andrea Olin knew what she 
wanted to be when she grew up-a 
dolphin trainer. 

Andrea's story begins with a 
short story she read called 
"Swimming with Dolphins" in sev- 
enth grade. The slory told of a Itcmi- 

. plegic - someone without Ihe use of 
one arm and leg • who learned to 
reach beyond her normal limits with 
the help of a dolphin named Fonzic. 
Over time Andrea's curiousity 
about dolphins grew and in April of 
1998 Andrea and her family visited 
Dolphins Plus. Dolphins Plus is a 
mannc mammal research and edu- 
cation center located in Key Largo, 
Fla. The facility houses 12 Atlantic 
Bottlcnosc Dolphins and two 
California Sea Lions. 

After this exciting eye-opener 

. into_thc_dolphins*_world, Andrea 
applied for an internship in 

November of 2000 at Dolphins Plus. 
She was accepted in February of 
2001 and began hersix-weck intcm- 
-ship .on-Muy-9.- Along -wiih-her- 
iniemship also came a research 
project Andrea has to complete on 
"How enthusiasm affects dolphins' 

During Andrea's six-week 
internship, she took notes on differ- 
ent activities that occurred, followed 
a dolphin trainer around daily, and 
was able to swim alone with the dol- 

"Each dolphin responded differ- 
ently to each one or the trainers at 
Dolphins Plus," said Andrea. 

She- also helped feed each dol- 
phin an average of 20 pounds of 
fresh fish four times a day. The fresh 
fish^ consislcd . of four species 
including herring, caplin, sardines , 
and silvcrsides. Pills were inserted 
into each dolphin's serving of fish 
one time daily to allow the dolphins 
to attain all oftlicirncccssary vita — 

Dolphins Plus operates a marine 
mammal facility involved in e nvi- 
ronmentnreducatidh p'ragrams'riri-. 
-water -therapy- w;'ih disabled chil- 
dren, and the study of intcr-specics 
interaction between dolphins and 
humans. The facility also works 
closely wtih non-profit organiza- 
tions such as the Marine Mammal 
Rescue Foundation and the in-wuter 
therapy programs offered by Island 
Dolphin Care. 

visitors to Dolphins Plus can 
enjoy either a Natural Swim session 
or a Structured. Swim session. The 
Natural Swim session includes an 
informational briefing and a natural 
swim in snorkcling equipment with 
the dolphins. The Structured Swim 
session includes an educational 
briefing, guaranteed contact with 
the dolphins, and use of flotation 
vests instead of snorkcling equip- 
ment. Participants in ihe Structured 
Swim session may also enjoy feed- 
ing the dolphins. : —

Minnesota public libraries will 
receive donated computer hard- 
ware, software, and training worth 
about SS.2 million .from the Bill 
and Mclinda Gates Foundation, 
according to the Department of 
Children. Fumilics & Learning 

ThcBill-and-Mclinda -Gates '

computers, which will be located 
throughout the state for staff train- 
ing and public use. CFt's Library 
Development and Services office 
served as the liaison between the 
foundation and the public libraries. 
'Though almost all our public 
libraries offer Internet access, most 
currently limit the amount of lime 
customers arc allowed to use com- 
puters due to high demand," said 
CFL commissioner Christine Jax. 
' Ph;Dr"Thanksto ihehard work-of- 
CFL's Joyce C. Swongcr and her 
stuff who help support Minnesota's 
public libraries, and the generosity 
of the Bill & Mclinda Gates 
Foundation, more Minnesotans 
will have access to the information 
they need." * 

" rhe grants went to libraries in 
communities with at least a 10 per- 
cent poverty level. The number of 
computers each library building 
will receive will depend -on the 
population served at each library. 
Twenty-eight libraries chose to" 
obtain Spanish- as well as English- 
- language computer systems. - 

Each library will send one or 
more staff members to one of 
seven computer, instruction and 
maintenance workshops offered at 
locations around the state July 19- 
27. These workshops will instruct 
library staff and the public lo effec- 
tively identify and use electronic .

and government agencies will also 
be able lo attend the free training. 
Libraries will then receive jUicir 
computers and additional training 
between October 2001 and- April 
2002. " ■ 

Also, as a result of this year's 
legislation signed by Governor 
Jesse Ventura. Minnesota libraries 
can draw on $400,000 in each of 
the next two years for online and 
other databases that will give state

...He's Guilty of Something 
Frankly, I don't care that Representative Gary Condin had an affair 
with his intern, Chandra Levy. I don't care if he has had several affairs 
with womcm-I figure things like that are only the business of Condin, the 
woman, and the wife. They are certainly none of my business, since he 
isn't my representative. If he were, it might be a different story.

information on subjects that may 
seem far out but catch the fancy of 
this age group. The club will 
"dare" kids to discover such topics 
as "shocking moments," "real life 
adventures," "awesome explo- 
rations," "amazing inventions," 
"outdoor life," or any subject of 
their choice.

'lar summer reading program' at the

summer reading- program, popular 
as it is. isn't reaching, the kids who 
need it most - the reluctant read- 

The library has received a grant 
for this pilot project from the 
Minnesota Office of Library 
Development to help combat the 
widening gap between the worst 
and best readers among grade 
schoolers. According to U.S.A. 
Today, only 32 percent of the 
nation's fourth graders read at 
grade level. The consequence of 
rcadinc failure in a technology- 
dependent world is a host of social 
and economic tils.

has purchased u special collection 
of materials containing everything 
from comic books to non-fiction 
titles on stich subjects us dirt bikes.

Representative Condm has been anything but helpful in aiding her family 
in their search for her. We first heard that he considered her a good friend 
and were told that he would help to find her in every way. lie lied about 

Condin has shown himself to be a guilty man. 

He's guilty of waiting two months after Levy went missing to final- 
ly admit to having an extramarital affair with her. By wailing with his 
admission, he has obstructed the investigation of her disappearance and 
perhaps allowed vital evidence to fall by the wayside. If he cared enough 
about her to have an affair with her, wouldn't you think he might have 
been n little worried when sh* disappeared into thin air, and wouldn't he 
have wanted to help find her in any way he could? Or do you think maybe 
■ he was just worried about covering his own rear and make sure he didn't 
get found out? He's guilty. 

He's guilty, of lying. Doesn't anyone care that the man has been 
jying? In two previous police interviews, he said he hadn't been involved 
in an intimate relationship with Levy, lie gave press conferences denying 
an affair with Levy. Oh, my, no, he did not have an affair with Levy, he 
said. Now in the past weekend he lias admitted to having an affair. Thai 
means he lied when he said he was just a friend. Isn't there something 
wrong with this picture? 

"Oh, Isn't it nice that he has come forward with this information? 
What a noble thing to do- ndmitt© the affair! Heit being such an upstand- 
ing guy!" You've got to be kidding! He flat-out lied! Doesn't anybody care 
about the lying he did? Docs taking two months to getting around to 
_ telling.tlic.tmth-iiiake.hima. great guyiUc's guilty. 

How can we trust that Condin is telling the truth now? Frankly, if I 
were. the. investigators, I -would trusfhim about us for -as lean sec him. 
Seems to me it look quite a bit of pressure to gel him to admit to the affair 
as it is and one can't help but wonder if he would have admitted it at all if 
things hadn't neat up. Would he have.come forward if it hadn't 
been for the pressure by' the media on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Levy and the 
damning statement by Chandra Levy's aunt, Linda Zamsky, in which 
Linda said she was, aware ofa relationship between her niece and Condin: 

Despite the fact that I don't care that he had an affair with Levy, I 
feel Condin is guilty of taking advantage of his position. Yes. she was 24 
years old and should have known what she was doing. But he was a 53- 
year-old politician, n representative of her home stale, a player in Ihc gov- 
ernment game. No matter how old she was, she had siars in her eyes. 

By having a relationship with a young, impressionable intern,' 
Condin abused his position of power. He knew she was young and easily 
influenced, and that she was infatuated with him. I'm sure lie knew what 
was going on when he chose to have an affair with her. He knew he was 
the boss in the affair and she was the little slave, enthralled by ihc big 
man, and, what's more, that was ihc way he liked it. His hiding of the 
affair was proof that he knew it was not an admirable thing to do. He's 

What is it about politicians that allows them lo think that they, can 
- lie and cheat.and conduct themselves outside the law and lhai they won't 
be punished? Are they above and beyond the laws that govern thercst of 
us? Gee, could it be because they arc allowed to continuously do things 
.that are -again si the law and do not get any mare punishment than a slap 
-'on the hands, if that? Why aren't they held as accountable as the rest of ' 
us? - 

What a shame that so many of the tenders of our country seem to 
think they are above being governed by the laws they arc elected to 
uphold. -

•Whenever possible plan around ■ 
your child's nap time. 

•Keep a few disposable diapers in 
your cars glove compartment. To 
make cleanups easier, tuck a pack- 
aged towclcttc and _a plastic bag' 
inside of each diaper. 

■Freeze a plastic container 1/3 to 
1/2 full of water. When you are ' 
ready to go, fill the container with 
water for a long-lasting, cold thirst 
quencher. Water is healthy, quench- 
es the thirst, and isn't messy if 

•Always carry a change of 
clothes for young children. 

•Avoid shopping, when you can, 
by catalog shopping. You can com- 
pare prices in peace and quiei as 
well as save time, money *and gas. 

Talk to your child about where 
you are going and what your child 
can expect.

Two faith-based financial 
service providers merge 

Calling it an unprecedented 
opportunity to "meet more needs, 
help more people, and increase our 
future growth," leaders of Aid. 
Association far Lutherans (AAL) 
and Lutheran Brotherhood (LB) 
announced plans to merge the two 
fraternal benefit societies by year's 

The announcement follows ini- 
tial approval by the boards of direc- 
tors for LB and AAL. John O. 
Gilbert, chairman, president and 
CEO of AAL (headquartered in 
Applcton, Wis!) and Bruce J. 
Nicholson, president and CEO of 
LB (headquartered in Minneapolis) 
shared the news with employees in 
Minneapolis and Applcton and 
with their field staffs nationwide. 

"The merger is an outstanding 
opportunity for us to build a frater- 
nal benefit society^unlikc any yet 
seen," Gilbert stated. "Because 
AAL und LB were founded for the 
same reasons and share remarkably 
similar missions, il is a very com- 
pelling business transaction." 

"It will combine the strength 

and potential of two leaders in the 

financial products industry, and 

~ extend the Christian framework of 

our organization." said Nicholson. 

The merged organization will 
have almost 3 million members, 
with almost $60 billion in assets 
- members of LB and AAL will 
become members of the combined 
organization. The- new organiza- 
tion's corporate center will be 
based in Minneapolis, and its oper- 
ations center will be in Applcton. 

By merging, the new fraternal 
benefit society will be positioned to 
offer even more in asset manngc- 
; ment, insurance,' and 'financial 

Planning products and services, 
olh LB and AAL are listed on the 
list of Fortune 500 companies. The . 
combined organization will rank 
among, the top financial -service 
providers, but will continue to offer 
its products consistently with its 
mission as o fraternal benefit socie- 
ty. / . .. 

As a fraternal benefit society, 
the Financial aspects of die organi- 
zation arc 'only part of the picture, 
, "We intend to offer new and 
enhanced programs and services to 
our members ihrough our charita- 
ble outreach," said Gilbert. 

Gilbert and Nicholson also - 
promised lo continue ihc strong tra- 
dition of corporate citizenship and 
giving in both Ihc Twin Cities and 


Completing the merger requires 
approval from several government _ 
"agenciesrlnaddition. approximate- 

ly 300 LB member delegates must, 
vote on the merger. LB will con- 
vene the delegates later in the year. 
The AAL board also must grant 
final approval. Members of AAL 
and LB will receive the formal 
merger agreement in advance of 
those votes. 

Speaking with employees, 
Gilbert said that ihc merged organ- 
ization "will continue lo Be a mujor 
employer in boih Applcton and 
Minneapolis." LB and AAL have u 
combined workforce of 7,100 peo-. 
pie, which includes both home 
office staffs, as well as ihc nation- 
wide field staffs. 

"Through this merger, we 
expect to nuvc more members to 
serve, which means our financial 
services and products will broaden 
and grow, and in turn, wc will be 
providing more charitable out- 
reach," said Nicholson. 

"We are providing our members 
wilh insurance and other financial 
services, self-help and volunteer 
opportunities op n scale our 
founders could not have imag- 
ined" Gilbert said. "Now wc must 
anticipate and respond lo the needs 
people will have tn this new centu- 

Should the merger be approved, 
Gilbert will 'be chairman of the 
board and Nicholson will be prcsi- 
Nicholson and Gilbert will have 
their offices in Minneapolis. The 
senior management team will con- 
sist of several executives from each 

A new name for the combined 
organization has not yet been 
selected. The new identity will 
come out of the work of transition 
teams, composed of representatives ~ 
from both LB and AAL. 


House parties, a day at the lake with friends, 

and a bonfire out at the farm are all fun events - but 

what seems like harmless fun can turn out to be anything but. 

At first it has a glamorous appeal - your friends do it, 

you try it and like the way it feels; you don't have to be yourself 

but binge drinking is an easy way to do harm to yourself 

and someone else. 

Don't play games with your life or someone else's."

It has been 10 years since 1 have 
traveled west into Moniana. Last 
week I decided it wus time to see 

jlie mountains again. . 

" On family vacalions when I'was 
a child, Idooked forward lo seeing 
the mountains as much as I might 
look forward. to seeing u Twins 

. As wc. crept, west across the 
prairie in ihe LTD station wagon, I 
Kept my eyes peeled for mountains 
in ihe distance. 1 usually started 
seeing snow-capped peaks on ihe 
horizon just wesl of Bismarck. Of 
course, those mountains always 
turned out to be clouds. Or a 
mirage. ■-._.■—, 

A day luier when 'we reached 
Billings, we finally could make out 
in ihe distance the snow fields of 
the Beanoolh range lo die south. ■ 
As we drove closer, the moun- 
tains looked scary, foreboding. 
Thunderstorms hovered over the 
ranges in the afternoons. The sheer 
clifls seemed ominous lo a child of 
the prairie, butjhri I j jng al. ihe same __ 

One wonders, whui is it about 
mountains thai is so alluring, thai 
draws thousands of, people thou- 
sands of miles? Perhaps- it is- the- 
combination of beauty and danger 
which makes mountains so irre- 

Montana is crawling with 
tourists right now, and most of 
litem won^ bait a line or walk a 
trail. They come to see the moun-

used to iticm und take iheni lor 

My great-grandmother came 
across'from Norway. Although/she 
was happy over here arid loved her 
little house in Twin Valley, she 
once said that ihe only thing miss- 
ing in tho new country was a moun- 
tain out back. 

Mountains have mystical power. 

Down On 
The Farm 

Many Indian tribes consider them 
sacred. Some people talk aboui 
mountains as'if they were friends 
An Old Testament figure once suiiL 

'I look lo Ihe" 'mountains. Trn'm 
whence comcih my strength." 

Seems like an odd statement, 
until one drives between two 
mountain ranges, through one of 
Montana's grand valleys. From the 
highway, the line of sighi extends 
up to fifty miles in every direction. 
Within lhal view siand millions of 
trees and do/ens of snow covered 

Those mountains have been 
there for thousands of years, virtu- 
ally unchanged. They towered 
there before wc arrived, and they'll 
be llierc long after wc ore gone. 

Such alpine grandeur can make 
one feel as inconsequential as an 
anl. You'd think one would feel 
overwhelmed, dwarfed, belittled. 
But 1 feel nothing of ihe sort, and I 
don'l think anybody else docs, 

Instead, by reminding us of our 

"smallncss. thc~sc 'sighis give its' u" " 

perspective wc lack buck at the 

office, a perspective us broad as the 

Montana sky. 

Thegodlikc grandeur of moun- 
tains makes life's problems seem 
small.. Mountain scenes refresh the 
spirit and culm the mind. Mountain 
air invigorates the imagination. 

No wonder wcslem, Moniana 
crawls with immigrants from the' 
city, tourists, artists, und others 
who seek relief from ihe fatigue of 
-lifc-on— the— treadmill. They've ■■ 
comcih to ihe mountains lo gcttcth 
some strength.

Corcoran to take over second-place. 
Ferris' lead didn't last. A caution flag

to be the largest crowd so far this 
season was .treated lo a fantastic 
evening of racing.

' same. After iwo restarts due to spin- 
outs, the race was led the first' four 
laps by Mike Balcacn (Winnipeg, 
Man.), who would surrender the 
lead to Brian Strand (Bcmidji) on 
Lap 5. Strand would lead relatively 
comfortably the next 14 laps before 
being challenged by Jan Sciiz 
(Bcmidji). Seitz, who started 18th in 
the 19-car grid, used a couple of 
cautions and some .great driving lo 
pass Balcacn with two laps to go 
and then closed in on Strand for ine 
sprint to the flag. Strand would win, 
with Seitz second and Balcacn third. 

Joey Pedcrson (Bast Grand 
Forks) made his first appearance of 
the season at the Grccnbush- Race 
Park in the Super Stocks, Pedcrson. 
who moved into the Late Model 
class this season, continues to suffer 
some health related effects from the 
fuel that the Late Models use. But. 
he is a threat no mailer what class he 
runs, and he proved that by racing to 
the win in the Super Stocks feature. 
Bryon Berger (Badger) finished 
second, with Dan Morbcrg (Mentor) 
crossing the finish line ihird. 

Robbi .Peterson (Middle River) 
won the Mini-Sprints feature.

front row, was challenged carly-for- 
_thc lead by Dcnnj^Rantancn (Thief 

■ River Falls). Peterson extended'his 
lead as - he masterfully worked 
through lap traffic. Rantancn fin- 

~ishcdsccond,-with Gerald HaUcstad-

Minnesota DNR looking for help to find loggerhead shrikes 

Officials with the Minnesota 
Department of .Natural Resources 
Nongumc Wildlife Program are ask' 
ing birders and outdoor enthusiasts 
to be on the lookuut for a rare 
Minnesota species of bird, the log- 
gerhead shnkc, and to report uny 

sightings this summer, 

According to Steve Kitlelson, 
DNR nongame wildlife specialist,, 
"The statewide population of 
shrikes is shrinking. 4 ■

-oggcrhead shrikes were once

New format is featured in 
^Outdoor Women program 

unforested region of Minnehoiu. 
Today, llieir numbers are very li»w. 

"Recent surveys have located 
fewer than 3(J nests of ihis threat- 
ened bird in Minnesota," 'Kitlelson 
said. . 

Loggerhead shrikes are unusual 
birds, with the cliiiriicteristi 

strong, sharp claws and feet and typ- 
ically impale iheir food to hold it 
while eating," Kiltelson said. 

Loggerheads frequently slash 
food Hems for later use by wedging 
them in the fork of a branch or hang- 
ing them on barbed wire or thorns. 
Because of Ihis aetiviiy. they have 

- both" songbirds . and rapiors. They — earned thc-nickname "butcher bird." 

male.s Jo attract males. 

About ihe si/c of a robin, the log- 
gerhead shrike is slate-gray, wiih a 
black tail and wings and a distinc- 
tive black musk. 

Loggerhead shrikes usually 
inhabit prairie or agricultural areas, 
arid are often conspicuous as Ihey 

feet above ihe ground, and lay four 
to six dull white, or buff-colored 
eggs: The chicks hatch after 10 to 1 2 
days and leave ihe nest about three 
weeks alter hutching. 
Any summer observations ,of ■ 
birds should he reported to 
Kitlelson by calling loll free 

feed on large insecis, mice, frogs 
and small birds as well.

Becoming An Outdoors Woman 

workshop will have a new format 
this September. The workshop will 
take place at Eagle Bluff Environ- 
mental Center in Lancsboro Sept. 7- 

"We have combined two very 
popular offerings into a weekend," 
said Becoming An Outdoors 
Woman Coordinator Jean Bergcr- 
son. "Saturday will be a return to the 
Field Day format w'c used for sever- 
al years, which means ladies will be 

throughout the day. Some women 
might want to return to a class more 
than once during die day." 

Courses will be on a 1.5 hour for- 
mat instead of the usual 3.5. hours.. 

. This will give participants the 
opportunity to attend many classes 
and for BOW to offer courses that 
do not lend themselves lo a longer 
time period. New- courses offered 
under .this format arc air rifle, 
climbing wall and dog talk. 

Sunday will be a day to focus on 
just one activity. Women can choose 
one of six activities offered. The 
offerings will highlight the outdoor 

activities . southeastern Minnesota 
has to offer. Canoe the Rool River, 
spend ihe day caving, biking the 
Root River Trail, or fly-fishing area 
streams and rivers. 

Each activity will have instruc- 
tors to answer questions, help par- 
ticipants Icam. and provide guid- 
ance for (he day. 

Woman can register for the entire 
weekend or Saturday only. Weekend 
registration is for Friday evening 
through Sunday. 

"w e hope the flexible schedule 
. and new format will encourage par- 
ticipation by ladies who were 
unable to- attend the Friday noon 
through Sunday noon workshops," 
_Bcrgcrson said. :.._.. _.. 

Limited scholarships arc avail- 
able to women who want to partici- 
pate for the entire weekend. Space 
is limited for the Sunday offerings, 
so early registration is advised.

-Editorial opinion-published under-lhls-headlng Is intended to stimulate Ihinklng-and discussion among our readers. Unlessspsclded olheralsenheedllorlals areTsirllten bsrEdllor Da6e"HIII"and _ 
do not represent opinion of other staff members. Opinions In items from other publications may not coincide with the editor's own views but are offered for their general Interest. 

We are asked to 
participate in a free 
and safe society 

Thief River Falls Police department has been drawing close 
10 the community through a number of initiatives called com- 
munity policing, first pursued by Police Chief Ken Froschheiser. 
and then by Police Chief Jim Haugen. Perhaps as a result of __ 
these initiatives and programs law enforcement is reporting a 
decline in the number of crimes. It is. however.retuming law 
enforcement to The People 1 . 7~ — __-.—.__ 

I'm not sure that the decline in crime can be directly attrib- 
uted to community policing ulone.-There are many factors that 
would surely impact criminal activity, such as an improved 
economy, a "younger and more aggressive" staff, maybe even 
the weather. It is gratifying, however, to see the crime rate . 
decline, a nd commu nity policing has certainly helped increasc_ 
visibility and understanding. 

Regardless. Police Chief Jim Haugen recently said the police 
department needs to increase the understanding, of community 
policing within the city and department. He added that he will 
continue to work to increase police visibility and involvement in 
the community. 

Community Policing requires that citizens be active pnr- 


■ I'm sure I can't enumerate all of the benefits of community 
policing, but with it comes a greater understanding of the diffi- 
cult job police have. With it comes a greater understanding of 
our iawsrWtth ircomcs:a"Brcatcr responsibility, on our pan. to 
participate in activities that guarantee we all live in a safe and 
free society. 

Unintended, but surely a benefit of community policing, is 

the fact that because of citizen involvement we become more 

aware of how the court system works. True, we're not experts 
and we aren't expected to be experts, but having a basic knowl- 
edge of how-the system works, seems to eliminate some of the 
■ -false perceptions — fear that the system can be manipulated by 
the rich, that court is against '.'certain" people, or that there's 
some kind of conspiracy, for example. 

There is the fear too that community policing is turning citi- 
zens into informants and docile sheep. What's missing is the 
fact the laws being enforced by officers wc pay with our tax 
dollars, were created in response to citizen demands — the 
demands of all of us. 

In a sense community policing is returning the system to the 
people it was created for — The People — and there's no reason 
we shouldn't, within certain bounds, actively participate. 

While Police Chief Haugen has said that he will work harder 
to increase visibility and understanding, the implication is that, 
for it to work, citizens must be willing to participate, and in a 
sense, be willing to meet him halfwa^When^we get right down;_ 
— to it, without citizen'participationrcbmmuhity^IicihgTnitia^ 
lives and programs won't work. * ■ 

Changing the Polling Question 

From Forest Tent 
Caterpillars to cell 
phones and driving 

Our unscientific poll of website visitors indicates that 62.09 
percent or 1 1 3 visitors would bc.willing to pay a surcharge on 
their utility bills to pay for spraying for forest tent caterpillars. 
Nearly 38 percent of the visitors (69), voted against the poll 
question. ' 

It appears the worst is over. The forest tent caterpillars have 
emerged from their cocoons as small brown moths. For a short 
time they covered walls of homes and businesses and the ground 
below street lights. Now the IiCtlc brown moths have diecLofLo 

Court should take over redisricting 

by Mary KifTmcycr 

MN Secretary of State 

Do you know where you live? 
You may know your street, city, 
and state, hut do you know your 
2002 legislative district? How 
_ about. .your- congressional district?- 
If you don't, you're not alone; in 
fact, no one knows. 

As a result of the 2000 census, 
Minnesota is now in the process of 
"rcdistricting" — the grouping of 
people for purposes or representa- 
tion in government. 
' The process allows for the stale 
legislature 10 draw new lines every 
10 years to produce election dis- 
tricts of relatively similar popula- 
tion. Once the new staic-Icvcl dis- 
tricts are changed, then local gov- 
ernments go about the process of 
drawing their'new districts — for 
county board of commissioners, 
city council, school board and 
elected io represent the new dis- 
tricts, so il is easy to see why the 
process causes conflict: political 
power is at stale. Still, the conflict 
should not be insurmountable. . 

Regrettably, (hough, in the-lcg- 
islalive session that just ended, the 
legislature failed to adopt a rcdis- 
tricting plan. While the House 

passed u plan of Republican design, 
and the Senate passed u plan of 
Democratic design, no conference 
committee meetings were even 
held to discuss (he radically diver- 
gent plants, let alone lo forge a 
compromise for enactment. In Tight 
of the stakes involved and the con- 
flict already on display, court chal- 
lenges arc almost guaranteed, no 
matter what plan the legislature 
would eventually adopt, thereby 
delaying resolution even more. 
Indeed, court resolutions over 
rcdistricting are quite common. 

While the law permits passage 
of a rcdistricting plan as lute as next 
March, prudence would have it 
enacted long before thai deadline. 

Our democratic republic bene- 
fits from an informed electorate. 
Voters need information about their 
new election districts to make good ■ 
decisions and know the candidates ' 
seeking to represent them. Voter 
-cunfusionand th&patcniial for-vot — 
ing in the wrong location would be 
reduced if the rcdistricting plan 
were implemented sooner rather 
than later. This would allow elec- 
tion officials more time to notify 
voters of ihcir new polling place 
locations and allow voters more 
time to become educated about 
their new districts and rep rc.scn lu- 

ll would be a shame if the legis- 
lature's or the political parties' 
inability lo agree on a rcdistricting 
plan were to result in thousands of 
confused or under-informed voters. 

Understanding this, I recently 
wroic to the legislature's redistrict-- 
ing committee members, urging 
litem immediately to adopt a plan 
for the benefit of voters, out lo rla 

There is another solution .to this 
problem: In instances where .the 
legislature appears to be in dead- 
lock over rcdistricting with no Hope 
of compromise, us clearly is trie 
case this year, the Minnesota 
Supreme Court has the prerogative 
lo step in ut any lime and take over 
the process. 

It's time. Left any longer to the 
legislature, the rcdistricting process . 
is likely just to'chew up valuable 
lime that could be spent in educat- - 
-ing-vaicrs and-simply-to-wasic-tux - 
dollars on legislators' expenses. 
The people of Minnesota deserve 

Given our stale's history on 
rcdistricting, it seems like plain 
common sense that, far the benefit 
of the voters, the State Supreme 
Court should step in and lake over 
the process right now. 

Phasing but 
the death tax 
helps small 

by Jack Furls 
NF1B President 

On Thursday, June 7. the 
— ProsidcnuaLthe— United-Slates— 
signed into law a bill that ctinil~ 
nates the most feared tax of the 
American entrepreneur: the death 

. It will take a few years to "phase 
il'oui," but in 2010 small-business 
owners ' across America, will 
*reaihe a sigh of relief that we'll all 
be able to hear. 

Dcmonizcd by repeal opponents 
as a "lax on the rich," the death tax 
has been affecting middle-class 
farmers, ranchers and business 
owners for dccades.Opponcnts 
denied (his reality, saying that only 
a tiny fraction of Americans "ever 
pay the lax." 

This was true. But it was also 
true that srhull^busmcss owners 
were often left with no choice but 
to sell their businesses before their 
death, unable to pass the legacy on 
to their children without being dev- 
astated by the lux. 

It was also true that the mere 
possibility of being subject to the 
tax served as a disincentive to grow 
businesses, create new jobs and 
better products. 

The death tax was bud news and ' 
un-American, and everyone knew 
it. For the congress and the presi- 
dent to repeal it is u great, historic - 
moment for the small-business 
community. It is a great battle-vic- 
tory in the larger war against taxa- 
tion that is too high and often fun- 
damentally unfiiir. 

The tax cut bill also included a 
reduction in income lax rates: more 
good news 'for small employers! 
Since uboul 85 percent of small- 
business owners file their taxes as 
individuals, not as corporations, 
this cut means more money for 
employee salaries and benefits, 
much-needed cash for upgrading 
equipment, und in some cases the. 
breathing room necessary to give 
employees a bonus check for a job

are dying off. Just recently I heard from an expert that he doesn't" 1 - 
anticipate that the forest tent caterpillar will be a problem next- - 
year. I guess we'll have to wait and sec. 

Following a trend in the media, the next question I would like 

-to pose to readers is, "Do you think talking on o cell phone— — 
while driving should be Illegal?" We're wailing to hear from

, UUws To Th» Editor The staff otTtWIlmes encourages writ- 
ten responses to editorial comment.or lettenwrft original thoughts 

Linda Runbcck. president of the 
Taxpayers League of- Minnesota.— 
reminded Minnesotans. last week 
that July 6. was "Cost of 
Government Duy." the date on 
which the average Minnesota has 
earned enough gross income to pay 
off his or her share of tax and regu- 
latory burdens imposed by all lev- 
els of government. 

Many Minncsolans may remem- 
ber that Tax Freedom D ay for 
~~ M I nncso I a came on May I th i s y ea"r~~ 
— one of the latest dates ever. By 
adding the burden of 'federal," state" 
und local regulations to the cost of 

taxes, Americans for Tax Reform 
calculated Cost of Government - 
Day to be nearly two months later, 
July 6. 

Both Tax Freedom Day and Cost 
nf„Govcmmcnt day have been" get- 
ting later in the year. Since 1990. 
the time Americans must work to 
pay the costs of government has 
been extended by two and one-half 
weeks. Since 1995. over 21,000 
new federal re gulations were 
issued." " ~ 

"Minnesotans ha ve a ri g ht -'to 
feci overburdened "by-government. ~ 
Wc now work half the year just io 

pay the costs imposed by govern- 
ment.- — : — 

"Minnesotans often don't realize 
the hidden costs of government, 
such as regulation. .What the Cost 
of Government Day docs is vividly 
demonstrate just how much all that 
government bureaucracy costs us, 
both in taxes and increased cosis," 
said Runbcck.. . 

Thankfully, (he Bush tax cut will 
help to reduce th e cost o f govern- 

So to those who say that mar- 
ginal income (ax rate cuts are also 
"for the rich." 1 say "not so!" When 
u tax break is given lo a business 
owner il absolutely benefits the 
-wage-and-sulury worker. Period. 
Because in the world of small busi- 
ness, employees are the most valu- 
able assets. Small employers want 
to invest in their people whenever 
financially possible. 

Wulch; you will sec. This tux- 
cut bill will huvc u positive impact 
on our economy because it is going 
to have a positive impact on the 
nation's job-creators. They are not 
"the rich." They are not out-of- 
touch. They are real people who 
provide our communities with real 
jobs. Th,cy are also the most gener- 
ous people I know. . . and they will 
use their tax break to" lift up others. 

It will be a wonderful American

To the Editor: 

Cornerstone Christian School 
was the site of something reminis- 
cent of the old-fashioned bam rais- 
ing during the first week of July. It 
was also a week of extreme joy and 
sorrow at the school. 

__ During that week a group of 23 . 
adulis and teenagers from 
Redeemer Lutheran Church in 
Rockford. 111., came io Cornerstone 
School for a work week. The group 
arrived on Sunday and during the 
following week accomplished an 
unbelievable amount or work — 
shingling the building, putting sid- 
ing and new windows on one wall 
of the gym. painting und doing 
some-repair on (he rest of llie exte- 
rior walls, and also doing some 
interior painiing. While they 
worked liard, they did everything - 

■ with enthusiasm 'and joy. Mcul 
limes were filled .with.lauglitcr and 

-good-natured teasing. Adulis and 
ieemigers_workcd together with 
mutual respect for one another's' 


People from our area ulso-did- 
their port. Several people donated 
equipment and tools for the project, 
and several helped with the work 
itself. And, many individuals, fam- 
ilies, church groups and AAL 
.groups provided meals and snacks 
for those who worked. 

The evenings were filled with 
Bible study, pravcrs and singing. 

Sorrow had its part in the week 
also. On Thursday evening, Paul 
Binder, one of the accompanying 
adults, passed away suddenly. ' 
Although, thc.cuuse of dcuthissull 
not certain, he did have severe dia- 
betes. He died when the group, hot 
from a day'* work; went tora quick- 
swim in cold water. 

Thanks and gratitude are in 
order to many people: to Dill 
Kuccnski, Redeemer's youth group 
leader, who coordinated lite whole, 
trip; to Darold and Dorothy 
Sicphanson. my brother-in-law and 
sister, who guvc Bill the idea for- 

ibc project: lo everyone in. the 
group — youths and adults — who 
gave tip a week's time to work on 
our school; lo LcRoy Mcrcil and 
his boys and others who. helped 
with the work: to all who brought 
and served meals and snacks for the 
workers: to members of the clergy 
who ministered to the group fol- 
lowing Paul's death; and special 
gratitude to Puul Binder who 
worked tirelessly for others and 
provided a wonderful role model 
for the youth of his church and 

Il was an emotional departure 
when the group left on Friday. They 
had become family 1 — brothers and 
sisters" in Christ"^ - Inth^dayyilfcy 7

"A night crew has been started at the planing mill and that 
institution will be worked night and day for-somc time. 

"While out exercising on Sunday ,thc fire laddies hud the hard 
luck to break the tracks from under the fire engine. C. A. Wistie got 
thrown violently to the ground and sustained an ugly wound in the 
knee. He regarded it ut first as trifling but on Monday the limb was- 
so bad that he had to keep to his bed where he is now under med- 
ical treatment. 

"Editor C. C. Knuppcn of.Crookston is a witty sort of a cuss 
and likes to tell a funny story better than most anything. He was at 
" Mentor lost-week and was ente rtaining a few of the natives, in his ■ 

•favorite- way.— In-order to-emphasize-apointin" mVnurrativcrhc- 
jumped to a sitting posiiion on top of an empty synjp barrel. .The. 
story he was telling hadn't been finished yet. Some syrup of the 
stickiest kind happened to be on the, barrel head and .he stuck. 
Somebody suggested a pair of scissors, but Knappen begged off 
explaining that he hud only one pair of pants-anil it wasugainstTiis 
ideas of proprictyfor a man to walk through the street with such a 
vacancy as would be caused in that way. The bystanders railed the 
barrel and its burden inside the store .where they extracted the man 
from the pants and then separated the wearing gcar-frbm the barrel 
with hot water. He stood up on the train all the way from Mentor 
toCrookston as he couldn't bear the idea of possibly going through 
another severing possess before he could be removed from the car."

"A good program for the occasion had been .prepared by the 
committee in charge. -The first item on the program was u Grand 
Parade which had to be abandoned on account of the rain. This was 
a pity as nearly nil of the business men had floats prepared to take 
part and the various fraternal orders had also some intention of 
turning out. But it was impossible und as soon as the sun had 
smiled down for a little while und the streets began to dry. the band 
entertained the crowd with u few selections. A program of speech- 
es; singing and music was rendered from the veranda of the Holel 
Markham whjch was kindly placed at the disposal of_the commit-, 
tee by the accommodating proprietors. Harry Ives presided over 
this portion of the day's event in his usual dignified way. The 
Declaration of Independence was read by J. K. Hannay und brief 
putriotic addresses were made by Rev. Hammond, in the English 
language and Rev. Lundc, in Norwegian. Both speakers were well 
received and heartily applauded. Patriotic vocal selections were 
rendered by the children^ chorus under the direction of Mrs. Ben 
Mitchell. The little ones acquitted themselves very creditably and 
reflected grcai credit on their instructor. 

"Abascball game, which" wavschcdulcd to be played between 
the Thief River Falls and Red Lake Falls teams, hud to be omitted. 
Both teams were on the ground but the rain had got there ahead of 
them and had the floor. In the afternoon the Red Lake Falls team 
played a game with a picked-up nine of locals, (tended in a score 
of_2 to 4 in favor of the visitors. _

"Say, isn't that band fine?' That was an expression heard, 
everywhere during the day. Yes. the bund was fine. The boys have 
been practicing up steadily and under the able direction of their new 
instructor, Mr. Peterson, they have gained wonderfully. During the 
entire day, rain or shine.-they were always ready and willing to ren- 
der some choice musical selections. To the bund is due much cred- 
it for the success of the duy.

Fourteen golfers participated in the American Cancer Society Longest Day of Golf at the Thief River 
Falls Gotf Club recently. It was a particularly hot and humid day, which was quite unlike previous 
events. Event organizer Shelby Sorvlg said in past years they've played in rain and cold, but noth- 
ing like the heat and humidity they were experiencing. The good thing about the event is that the 
number of participants seems to grow every year. Funds raised from the event are used for cancer

Flying High in St. Hilaire 

"For eight -time world champion 
bull rider and Hall of Fomcr Don 
Gay, watching the bulls, seeing 
some "of the young bull riders 

Erogrcss. and seeing .them team 
ow to win at bull nding all help 
keep him young at heart. 

"It keens mc from wishing I was 
25 again,' Gay said of the bull rid- 
ing announcing that he docs all over 
the nation and on television. 

Gay was first invited to the 
Pennington County Fair Rodeo last 

"1 remember mosquitoes as big 
as my tennis shoes," Gay said of his 
initial visit. 

~~ It*s~fiis fldmboyanrsiylc una" 
■ 'southern 
I drawl that 
] make him

l listen to. This 
J year he looks 
I forward to 
I doing the 
" p 1 a y - b y - 

' "Thunder on 
Hooves" bull riding portion of the 
rodeo, a job reserved for an expert 
who can tell fans what they just saw" 
a bull rider do. And Gay is certain- 
ly an expert, having rode his way to 
eight world titles, the most or any 
bull rider. He also shares a place in 
ihc Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame with 
his father, Ncal Gay. They arc the 
only father/son team in the Hall. 

Gay retired in 1986 from the 
sport, but continued on as an 
announcer and rodeo producer. 
Today he regularly announces on 
the TNN network. 

"Rodeos and bull riding-it's a lot 
bigger than one would think," Gay 
said, "with television coverage and 
everything. -It's— totally action 
packed." ■ 


Gay said scoring is based on an 
eight-second ride. A bull rider must 
stay on format amount of time just- 
to qualify. Two judges, on either 
side of the arena, score the rider. 
Each judge can award up to 50 
points. 25 points arc based- on how 
~*wcil-thc-ridcr rode- the bulliind the 
other 25 points arc based on how 
difficult the bull was to ride. The 
cowboy doesn't get to pick the ani- 
mal. Gay said, making it a random 

Each judge's low score will typ- 
ically be around 17 points and high 
c usually no more than. 24, 
according to Gay. 

"There's a lot of danger involved 
and that's part of the romance," Gay 
said. "It's good watchin*.'' 
A love of bull riding 

If there is one thing that Gay_ 
doesn't like, it's someone getting a 
free ride. He noted that professional 
baseball players, for instance, may 
not perform all that well, yet go . 
home wilh a million dollars at the 
_ _cnd of. the day, getting that free ride,. 
Bull riding, Gay said, is different. 
Bull riders may do their best and 
walk away wilh nothing. 

"A cowboy is a guy that's 
responsible for his own actions," 
Gay said. I like the fact that you're 
paid for performance." 

Gay has grown up with bull rid : _ 
ing. His father started the Mcsquite 
Rodeo in 1958 and raised him to 
love the sport-Announcing for bull j

one he will draw on when announc-

St. Hilairc All Nations Cultural 
Festival offered citizens a taste of 
culture not normally available in 
rural Minnesota. Performers from 

throughout the _rcgion and_ 

Winnipeg 'demonstrated folk 
dances and songs from throughout 
the world Saturday and Sunday, on 
a. surprisingly large stage tucked 
away in a pork behind the small 
community of St. Hilaire. 

It wos ; a big show for a small 1 
town. Bcmic Huot, one of the 
Organizers of the affair, said the 
"success of this event year after year 
. is due to the sponsors — the City of 
-St^Hilairc, tho-Communiiy-Glubr 
and the Senior Center committee 
— and the many volunteers, 

In his assessment, Huot_said_ 
jUtcndance was good. Of course, he 
added! it could always be better. 

'' ■ ,- / - ; ' 

Attendance on Saturday, he said, 
was u little better than an Sunday. 
He agreed that it's a busy time of 
year anil last weekend was no 
exception.Thc Cultural _Fcstiyifi„ 
"was in competition' with county 
fairs in Warren and Fertile. 

Others said they had an average 
attendance, which filled most of the 
scats and kept vendors busy. And 
other than high humidity, the 

'Aveathcr was good, 

Huot said it was u great show. 

On . Saturday, the crowd 

expressed enthusiasm by clapping 

an lime with some Ihc Ihc acts. One

Have you ever wondered exactly 
what a bog is? Is a bog the some as 
a wetland? How about a marsh or 
swamp, is that the same as a bog? 
The answer is no, a bog is a very 
different and special plant commu- 
nity. Come out to Rydell Refuge on 
Sunday July 22nd for an informa- 
tive and entertaining program and 
tour that will send you nome on 
expert on bogs and the plants that 
grow in them. The program will

Sundew Bog is hot yoht ordinary 
habitat found throughout this,part of 

Northern Minnesota. It is a 17 acre 
acfd bog located on Golden Pond' 
Trail, ft is'cspecially unique due to 
the occurrence of two types of 
plants, Cottongrass and Round- 
Leafed Sundew. There arc Five 
species of cottongrass' in the bog, 
four of which represent the western- 
most edges of their range. Round- 
Leafed Sundew is a carnivorous 
plant that feeds on bugs. As a rule, 
bogs arc very acidic, and the plant 
ana animal life thus supported, is 
often very different from the land 
surrounding it. Come out to the pro? 
gram and see for yourself how spc- 

ciol Sundew Bog is.

So. what the heck is the Red Hat 
Society all about? 

It all started a few years ago. when a 
California woman by the name of Sue 
Ellen Cooper was visiting a friend in 
Arizona and impulsively purchased a 
bright red fedora at a thrift shop. The 
hat. she thought, was great — quite 
dashing and cheap to boot.

When it occurred one day that ihcy 
were becoming a sort of "Red Hat 
Society." the women decided that they 
should go out' to tea wearing their red 
hats. Willi ihe poet threatening thai she 
will ". ." .wear purple and a red hat 
which doesn't go and doesn't suit me 
. ," each of ihe women decided that she 
would purchase a purple dress to com- 
plete her attire. 

The women's outing was a huge suc- 
cess, and before long, each of the origi- " 
nal society members brought another 
woman or two into, the group, When the 
fledgling group swelled to 18 members 
(more than fit around a lea table!), other 
interested women were encouraged to

...To the Fair We Will Go 
So, did I hear you say you don't plan lo go to the fair this year? What 
kind of excuse could you possibly have for missing all of the fun'.' It seems 
to me lhat a goudcuunly fair is just- what this place needs to liven things 
up a bit. The fair has something Tor everyone, and this fair is going to be 
especially good. 

Tins fair is celebrating, its 1 00th birthday, and it's doing so with a 
blast. The theme of this fair is "Century of Fun in 2001." There will be 
enough fun and festivities for everyone, running from Tuesday through 

thccntirc-wcck..untilSunday. .. 

"Oh, but I don't like the rides at the fair! They make me sick!" 
-There's more to the fair than rides. Let the youngsters with adven- 
turous natures arid strong stomachs go on the rides and you can take the 
time to enjoy some of the other things at the fair. 
"I don'l have any money to spend on the fair." 
-You don't need a lul of money. There arc many things at the fair that 
don't cost a thing. You can wander through the fairgrounds all day long, 
looking at the- exhibits and displays, winching the people, and talking with 
all the neighbors you don't have time to visit during the week. You can 
. wander through the midway and watch the suckers throw away their 
money on the wild games and cheer your friends on in their quest lor "the . 
gold." The excitement, music, noise and glitter is all free. . 

"I don't want to look at pig s and cows and chickens, even if it is 

-Go look at the other exhibits. Don't tell me you don't like lo look at 
something that is on display. Go look at your neighbor's llowers, or Aunt 
Milly's jelly. Uncle Bill's loaves of bread, or Cousin Tillie's cookies. 
. Check out the fancy pictures lhat the wild teenager down.the block drew 
and entered in the exhibits, and take a look at Granny's quilt there on the 
wall. Check out ihe 4-H exhibits - there will be everything from science 
and technology to woodworking to fashion and Imndywork.- 

"1 just want lo sit home and watch the boob tube or listen to my 

: tunes.". _

try/wesicm and some great band sounds. There are enrertatnments much 
bctlcr than those on television. They include several magic shows, the 
Williams and Rce comedy show, a local talent show, a hypnotist, fancy car 
show, and much, much more. There will be that famous bullriding Friday

Boy. it sure is tough for these 
people in Montana. Their .legisla- 
ture is always. digging up new ways 
to spoil their fun. 

For instance, if you decide to 
spend an evening at the Deerlick 
Saloon, the state mandates that you 
have to leave the bar by sunrise. 
Can you imagine? 

Fortunately, if you haven't fin- 
ished your most recent beverage, 
you are free to bring it, and a cou- 
ple more. if you wish, along with 
you and guzzle them in your pick- 

. up truck. You can't be drunk while 
driving, but you ore free to work on 


A couple of years ago, the 
Montana legislature come up with 
the crazy idea of limiting the speed 
people can drive on Montana high- 

. ways. Their feeble excuse was that 

foreigners were descending upon 

the state to race their Ferraris and 

Porches dawn the interstate. 

-.—Nothing- wrong with races on -!■*- 

' 90. except these stupid out-of- 
statcrs couldn't keep their Ferraris 
and Porches on the road, and when 
they flew end-ovcr-end off the 
highway at 135 miles per hour, 
they became a danger to, livestock 
and sheepdogs. So, now Montana 
has a speed limit. 

To their credit, most Montanans 
ignore it completely. 

Montana is said to have beauti- 
ful scenery. I wouldn't know. 3he 
mountains and streams arc little 
more than a blur as I try to keep up 
with traffic on these curvy moun-v 
tain roads. Most Montana residents 
seem happy to risk the $5 fine that 
comes from getting stopped for 

Down On 
The Farm 

doing 90 miles per hour. - 

Ever tried to be calm and col- 
lected with a logging truck 20 
yards off your tail-and you are 
already doing 80? 

The pickup trucks with multiple 
gun racks, well, (hey ore a little 
slow. Seems their owners ore too 
busy scanning the ditches for fox. 
deer, minorities, and jackrabbits. 

But watch out for young moth- 
ers in minivans with "Jesus Saves" 
bumper -stickers, They stop- for 
nothing, especially if Pampers are 
on sole at Kmart in'Missoula. Feel 
a tap from behind, you had better 
pull off to the the side'and'Iet'lhem 
through. ■ 

Despite Iheir repressive and 
tyrannical lows, the Montana legis- 
lature does have one soft spot for 
its drivers: 

If, through no fault of your own, 
you fly off a hairpin curve at 90 
miles per hour, you ore immediate- ' 
ly declared a Montana "Hero of the 
Highway" and given your very 
own steel cross marker, right at the 
spot where you went over the edge. 
If you brought others with you, 
they get crosses, too. 

If you ore really lucky, your kin- 
folk will run out to Wal-mort 'and 
buy a purty plastic wreath of flow- 
ers to hong on the cross, and there 
it will stand as.a lasting meraorial- 
-until somebody runs it over on 
their way over the some cliff. 

I drive too fast on the highway 
to know for sure, but it seems that . 
there is a cross, or a set of crosses, 
every couple of miles. It's really 
kind of touching. It can't be easy to 
mow around ollof those things.

completed the first statewide elk 
industry survey. The survey found 
that there, was over 26 million dol- 
lars in total elk inventory across the 

MASS conducted this survey at 
the request of the Minnesota Elk 
Breeders Association (MEBA). The 
main focus of the survey was to 
establish on industry structure and 
breeder,- characteristics such as 
inventory, marketing practices, and 
meat and velvet production for 
Minnesota. The Minnesota Elk 
Industry Survey can be found on the

Service website at in

Minnesota State. Statistician 
Michael Hunst said this is the first 
chance the state has had to quantify 
the elk industry. The primary 
objective of this survey was to meet 
the need expressed by the elk indus- 
try for current production data; ulti- 
mately, these figures may help 
improve current operations, market- 
ing, and industry wide information.

die Hamrcs to pull a wagon cart. - 
"Ox* are extremely easy to train 
provided you start when they arc at 
a young age." said LaVcmc. 

When Ole pulls his wagon he 
- wears a harness and collar, which is 
actually a horse collar turned upside 
down. This special collar is 
designed so that ii. doesn't bother 
Ole's front joint. 

In his more advanced training. 
.La Verne would have Ole pull a can 
along the roadway to get him used 
' .to other traffic so he could eventual- 
ly pull the can in town. Ole is now 
so tame that the Hamrc's grandchil- 
dren ore able to ride him with a sad- 
dle. . 

Ole is a Shonhom Ox. which arc

cattle. He is shaved by LaVcmc 

every April and loves receiving his 

regular baths with a garden hose. 

"I've always been interested in 
oxen. The hobby of raising Ole 
began after my retirement.' said 

■ La Verne worked as a truck driver 
at Hartz Foods for 25 years before 
his retirement. His wife also worked 
in the office at Hani Foods for 34 
years before her retirement. 
LaVcmc and Beverly have three 
children - Kirk Hamrc and his wife 
Holly of Roseau. Kirby Hamrc and 
his wife Kathy of Thief River Falls, 
and Tawnyu and her husband Tim 
Panek of Thief River Falls. 

About two months ago 
LaVerne's. wife passed away. This 
has led La Verne to consider cutting 
back on a number of activities; 

"After lo sing my wifc_abqm_two_ 
months. ago. it has been hard for me 
to continue showing Ole at area. 

parades. I just want to take some 
lime off and maybe resume all of 
Ole's showings next year." LaVcme 

Ole the Ox has pulled a can in 
numerous parades including the 
towns of Thief River Falls. 
Grccnbush, Niclsvillc, Brooks, 
Warren and Baudcttc - just to name 
u few. In parades, LaVcme says he 
doesn't dnvc Ole; he has Ole follow 
him instead. . . 

LaVemc also owns about 25 
other Shorthorn cattle, but Qlc 
spends most of his time alone. 
Inquiring minds often wonder if, 
there will ever be a Leha to help OIc 
pull his con. 

"Ole is one of a kind. I don't 
think he would get along very well 
_with anoth er ox because Ole was 
ralsca* and trained' alone." said 
LaVcme. ■ •
